SERAPI HERIZ, Northwest Persian
9' 4" x 12' 4"
284cm x 376cm
Late 19th Century
This striking piece from the region known for glorious medallion carpets offers an amazing work in this style's lesser-known, but often as majestic, allover design. Revealing Heriz's spirited color palette and highly graphic patterns, this particularly entrancing, subtly latticed allover design steps away from the orthography of more common iterations and is an artistic outlier among its peers. Multifarious 'Windows to Eternity' adorn the center of large-scale flowerheads like jewels. Dynamic juxtapositions of hue are yet another masterstroke, with a stunning tropical color scheme of yellow hibiscus, flamingo, lagoon blue, and seafoam green, further enlivening the tastefully exuberant design. The finest weaves of antique Herizes sometimes reflect a Serapi construction, as this piece does, that produces a smoother surface, denser pile, and crisper imagery.
